LOS ANGELES (AP) — Detectives are expected to resume searching an area of Los Angeles where two dogs found a human head in a plastic bag.
Police say two dog walkers with about nine dogs came across the bag on a popular trail below the Hollywood sign in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday.
Sgt. Mitzi Fierro told KCAL-TV that two dogs began playing with the bag. She says an object fell out and the dog walkers realized it was a severed head, believed to be from a male.
She says the bag was visible from the trail and that it didn't appear to have been in the area for a long time.
Coroner's investigators will attempt to identify the victim through dental records.
Detectives are expected to search the area again at daybreak Wednesday.
